Style Dominants of Didar Amantay Prose

Cover Page


The intensive development of information technologies, web resources and literature, Internet portals and Internet publications dictate the demand for small-scale prose genres. New literary trends are reflected in Kazakh national prose in the books of the writer, publicist, screenwriter Didar Amantay. The ecology of consciousness, the modern life of the city, the philosophical issues of life are the current topics of his prose and essay writing. As a representative of postmodernism and poststructuralism, Amantay combines elements of different styles and trends of the past in his work, often with an ironic effect, develops a philosophical direction and a critical analysis of culture and society. A characteristic feature of his style of narration is that the writer freely moves from the comparison of images and motives in the national literatures of the world to the analysis of the Kazakh one, addressing his works of art to an exquisite, intellectual reader.
